Tony Rogers lives, with his wife Julie, in Stroud in the Cotswolds, United Kingdom. He is a physicist by profession and a technical director at a hi-tech company. Over the years, he has become dismayed at the poor level of scientific understanding of the majority of the population. Unfortunately many children are turned off science at an early age due to the unimaginative way that it tends to be taught. He is also concerned that, despite the huge amount of evidence for the scientific explanation of the origins of our planet and of life’s evolution on that planet, there is still a widespread belief in unfounded religious interpretations.
His objective with Molly’s Cat, his first book, is to try and capture the imagination of children at a young age and introduce them to the wonders of the history of the universe, our planet, and life on the planet by building it into a story about an event in a child’s life.
